Itinerary

DAY 1: MONTREAL

Once you’ve cleared customs you will be greeted by your GVQ Travel guide. You will be immediately transferred to your hotel in order to settle in your room. Montreal’s old town, located on the southern part of the island, is the historic city centre. This part of the city overflows with things to see, among which are the Old Port, Place Jacques Cartier, Montreal City Hall, Place d’Armes and the Notre-Dame Basilica. In downtown Montreal you will find several modern skyscrapers, for instance the 1 000 De La Gauchetière, le 1250 René-Lévesque, the CIBC tower, the Stock Exchange Tower. Nevertheless, the most distinctive and famous tower remains 1 Place Ville Marie, designed by the architect Leoh Ming Pei in 1962; the construction of this building contributed downtown Montreal moving to its current location. This cruciform tower comes with an underground shopping mall and forms the heart of Montreal’s Underground City; one of the largest is the world. The tower gives you access to hundreds of indoor stores, restaurants, offices and boutiques as well as to several metro stations and a suburban transportation terminal, all the while protected from any bad weather. The Olympic Park houses the Biodôme (modern museum and permanent ecology laboratory), the Insectarium and the Botanical Garden, which is recognized as one of the largest and most beautiful in the world. Montreal also has a planetarium and a museum dedicated to water, the Biosphère Environment Museum.
